    ‘Good Day, Ladies, Gents And Things?’ Sayonara, J.A.L! 

    Fairly disgusting, giving up normal civilities to pander to the sexually maladjusted!

    Japan Airlines

    That’s the only response one can think of, on reading that Japan Airlines is no longer to greet it its passengers as ‘Ladies and Gentlemen,’ in case it upsets trans-freaks.



    JAL decided to implement a “diversity declaration” in 2014…


    One expects such inanity from London Transport, where it has already been imposed…

    Ladies and Gents’ No More -Sadiq Fatwa Bans Courtesy! 

    ….but Japan is widely seen as a still relatively safe haven for decent values.


    A better option, if JAL or any airline feels it must transport freaks, would surely be to operate separate flights, so normal people don’t find themselves stuck next to, or more horribly, between two men pretending to be women!



    Air travel is sufficiently stressful without going through that!

    True, such ‘Trans’portation services would be few and far between, because, despite all the shrill whining we hear, there are not that many freakos in any country.

    However, if they are keen to travel, they could cut the cr-p and wear clothing appropriate to their actual sex (not ‘gender,’ please!)  –


    – not that which accords with their delusions.

    Anyway, if JAL insist on cutting back on courtesies, normal people should respond by seeking alternatives.

    Another Japanese airline says it is considering what to do and will consult everybody, including passengers.


    All Nippon Airways

    So let’s all contact them..

    …and say we are never going to use JAL again…

    …and hope All Nippon Airways will not follow JAL’s nauseating appeasement policy.

    A Rude Old Bat Uses Holocaust Memorial To Score Party Political Points! 

    From the rotten media’s headlines, you’d think the AfD patriot party had disrespected a Holocaust memorial service held in Bavaria last week.

    AfD MPs walk out on Holocaust survivor’s speech – Irish Times

    Far-right AfD lawmakers walk out of Holocaust commemoration in Bavaria  – Deutsche Welle

    AfD lawmakers walk out on Holocaust survivor’s speech in Bavaria – Channel NewsAsia

    Far from it!

    A far more accurate headline would have been –

    Insulted by a guest, AfD make dignified exit!

    Because here’s what actually happened.

    Like all the members of Bavaria’s state parliament the AfD turned up courteously and took their places for the memorial- only to face a politically-motivated diatribe from a woman who was a GUEST on THEIR work-place premises.

    ONLY THEN did they do what was reported –

     MPs from Germany’s far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD)  party staged a walk out from the Bavarian parliament during a service to remember Holocaust victims, after it was accused of playing down the crimes of Nazis…

    Charlotte Knobloch,


    After Charlotte Knobloch…told the chamber that the AfD based its policies on “hate and marginalisation,” more than a dozen state politicians made a point of walking out.

    So were they expected to sit there and let this old bat spew her leftist vitriol all over them?

    Why would anyone put up with her bad manners?

    The patriot party could have staged a tit-for-tat exchange of insults but they didn’t.

    They showed sensible self-restraint and left peacefully.

    A lesson in courtesy undoubtedly lost on Knobloch!

    Black Friday’s Obnoxious ‘British’Rabble – Manners No More? 

    During Ramadhan, many Indonesian notables organise hand-outs for the common folk here. Money or food-stuffs are given away in small batches, and the chaotic scenes, pushing, shoving, old women and little children often keeling over in the crowds, are horrendous to behold.


    • ===========
    Watching such displays of what amounts to mob hysteria is no pleasant experience – I have often remarked to Indonesian guests in my home on why people can’t just wait their turn and behave in an orderly manner.
    Admittedly, the organisers are frequently to blame for not organising things better, but the behaviour of some of the would-be recipients makes me recoil, having spent much of my youth in the UK, where all of us were imbued with the virtues of queuing.

    The ‘Good Manners’ Guide above predated me by many decades, but nevertheless, waiting your turn was a key-note of a British upbringing, as recently as the Sixties, hard to slough off.

    In my early days here in Jakarta I used to take forever when buying even a postage stamp, because it was engrained in me not to batter my way ahead of everybody else.

    Post Offices seemed to be the worst, for some reason!

    • Thus rude oafs ( and oafesses! ) would forever get to the counter before I did. Protests were ignored, evoking only askance glances at best from said boorish toe-rags.

    Eventually, of course, I became as bad as they were.


    Not quite- I still interpose myself at Busway stops, to allow women and the old to get on board despite obnoxious men who show neither deference to ladies nor respect for age.

    ‘Not like this back in The Old Country,’ I have muttered to myself many a time and oft.

     Mutter no more!

    The news today from England – my link at the bottom of the page is to a Manchester media site which includes a video that will make you cringe, but London was as bad – offer a glimpse of a country where traditional good manners, never mind the legendary ‘stiff upper lip’ – have all but vanished.

    Officers were deployed to eight outlets overnight to deal with fights and arguments between desperate shoppers.

    Of course it would be facile to make too direct a comparison between Indonesia and England.

    In the UK today, there is no real poverty – in the areas of ‘deprivation,’ jobless residents get free schooling, free doctoring, welfare hand-outs and housing for which they pay little or nothing. 

    In Indonesia, some safety nets do exist, but millions live in poverty, their conditions almost unimaginable to people in the West.

    It is SO embarrassing to read of those morons in Manchester brawling brutally for luxury electronic goods.
